    I grow up in wisconsin listen to hunting, fishing, and trapping stories from my step grandfather, he said one year back in the day they trapped 40 foxes and then they would wonder why they are no foxes any more. Good guy, just kind of ignorant. You would here a lot of stories from older people about all the bear, fox, ect. there use to be. Over hunting, trapping and stupid rednecks that are looking for any reason kill everything off is the reason why there is no wild life there any more. Here in alaska is like wisconsin 30 or 40 years ago, I hear a lot of people that got back from a fishing or a camping trip and seen a bear down the river and the first thing they try to do is shoot it. It's one thing if it is dangerously close or is charging but it is another to shoot it for being a pest or just fun of shooting something and using the excuse that it is somehow going to hunt you down later. The point I'm trying make is 30 years from know, no matter what kind of animal it is, you will miss them when they are gone.


    I am a hunter and a fisherman, I just believe in being responsible about it.

    Hey Josh, lighten up, enjoy some humor.
    Wisconsin is not the desert you seem to think. Pretty sure there's plenty of bears there nowadays. Wolves are back in number. Got a bobcat trapping season. Big numbers of whitetail. Turkeys all over. I think maybe Ol Wis is about the same as it was 40 years ago.

    I don't find the picture of dead animals being manipulated humorous. I find it sick, twisted, and disgusting, only the simple minded idiots could ever find something like that to be funny. Some people have no respect for the animals we trap, and hunt. If I was ever accompanied by a hunter who "childishly and sick mindedly" disrespected the game we downed.....I'd pound the holy living crap out of em till bones started snapping. It's very very sad and inhumane........

    You would assault some one for posing a dead fox for a photo because it's inhumane?

    Wouldn't it be more constructive to explain to the person that you feel it is disrespectful and that you feel they have acted in a way that is offensive to you because of your beliefs concerning life and death?

    I don't think you would actually assault some one for such silliness. You would surely be arrested. Or worse, the person might shoot you in self defense....I think you are trolling for a response...here it is.

    Be careful insinuating "rednecks" are ignorant. Sure Jeff Foxworthy and Larry the Cable Guy are funny stereotypes; however, how about all the low IQ "nogs" that also inhabit the deep south? Nogs is in reference to just an equally disparaged group when it comes to humor too.

    I've encounterd this anti-southern attitude from the "yanks" over the years, always hating they have to live among our "small deer," how we like white gravy over that "crappy" brown stuff they consider a topping. When will it ever end?

    Most people who have never lived among rural, traditional folk can sometimes harbor such negative stereotypes. It was from these "hillbillies" our founding father's came, not from the enlightened, socialistic types from the North who think Obama is the 2nd coming of KFC. Get my drift?

    You may also find it odd that a Google search would show that etymologically a "redneck" was an indentured servant or White slave, often owned by others, including "free black" slave-owners.

    Think about it: It was cheaper to enslave children from England and ship to America than go half-way around the world to get slaves from Africa...Kinda puts a spin on the word "kid-nabbing," doesn't it? I guess we can thank the "redneck" descendants for knowing our history.

    Having spent time with relatives in Mississippi, back in the '80s, I loved the accents, not to mention a black man who was more "redneck," and old-schooled than his lily-white, wood-dwelling contemporaries. That man knew how to catch crawfish AND catfish. He was more ethical than any city-based angler, be it from Des Moines or Los Anchorage. Of course, there is always an exception to every self-delusional, biased "rule."

    I apologize for hi-jacking this thread. I go to great lengths to find fellow Southerners in this state. We don't appreciate being denigrated with the blanket-label of "redneck," for the most part.

    I just hope the moderators know that I am objective, giving others a lesson that being a "redneck," or "southern boy" is ok, cuz that includes the origins of American-based gospel and blues, taught from our people to our black friends way back in the day(s). Of course, some "rednecks" kill for no reason at all, and the initial poster of this racial pejorative is right -- it "aint ethical," to say the least.

    I've seen the picture on other forums. I think it was funny. I wouldn't pose any dead animal other than the trophy picture, myself. You can call me a redneck, but disrespecting animals means something way different to me.

    You my freind are much too "selective" and snobbish. You shouldnt "go through great lengths to find southerners in this state". This thread has nothing to do with northerners or southerners.....you brought this concept to the thread. You took that disgruntled fella's post out of context.....he stated "rednecks" and he also stated "Wisconsin"(nothing in there about the south!) With that said......I'm very enthused by your other "thinking outside the box" thoughts. We had a family freind who was from Mississippi that was more like family than just a freind. He used to make the homage up to Northern Maine every year to hunt and fish with my father and I. One saying of his that I'll never forget was "Man! yall are the most country folk I've ever seen......aint even a wall mart within 2 hours!" He was so impressed with the open country, the big barns n farmhouses, of Northern Maine that he would bring up more freinds as the years progressed. Even though Ron has sinced passed away.....his other freinds are hooked.....and still make the annual homage. Ron loved our hospitality, the 20 brook trout that he could catch in a half an hour, the fiddleheadin, smeltin, and the 8-10 pound lunker smallies......I believe he would call them rock bass. My father was a very stern, serious, and cautious man......wasnt ever really too much fun to be around. Ron had a personality that changed my father's disposition all together..........he made the trips more humorous and happy. When Ron passed away, my father and I never enjoyed our family outdoor trips near as much...... and we'd always point at almost every fishing hole that Ron pulled out a big smallie.......or spotted an eagle......or where he freaked out cuz he saw a gardner snake......we all laughed at that one (there are no poisonous snakes in Maine). We always pointed where Ron "was"......but it was always followed by silence with a brief smiles followed by the sorrow of our passed dear freind. Being from the north or south never mattered to us growing up.....we didnt even understand the distinction......we were too far in the woods.

    Default or, really?

    MAKE THAT "oh, really?" (BTW: My attitude at this moment is "Oh. Ho hum", in case anyone interprets this as otherwise.) Dear God/Mainer: I guess I better watch out, or someone will pound the holy, living sh*t out of me! Chill out, Jack. Who TF elected you judge, jury and executioner? Self-appointed? I could draw some conclusions about you, too, self-righteous being one of them. Life ain't pure and perfect, and it is usually not wise or constructive to jump up and down w/ comments like you made; not publicly, anyway. So you are the perfect person who respects everything to the hilt, not "sick or twisted" at all; well, BFD. Are you bragging or complaining? You won't take a pic like that of a dead animal, but you'd beat a fellow human till bones break. Real respectful! You think I don't respect what I kill, and also the stuff I don't kill? Gimme a break, dude. And I suppose, btw, that every picture of every person gloating behind their fresh-killed game is also a no-no? (I don't particularly care for those, but whatever; I ain't The Judge.) Be careful what you write; it lasts a long time, and some day you may regret it. Been there, done that, got the scars and the tee shirt. later. j

    Default stop arguing!

    The bickering over this picture saddens me! There is a group of people out there that probably are getting to the point that they out number us looking to end any kind of hunting and fishing that we do. Get over the differences in opinion of the picture. All of us are hunters and fisherman and need to stick together to fight off the anti's. We have enough people out there gunning for us, we dont need to fight each other.

    Sheesh! This thread looks like the dialogue for the Jerry Springer Show!

    The only thing I can see wrong with the picture is that Mr. fox needs to close the bolt on his gun so's he can shoot another raggit! Heck the old Buggs Bunny, Daffey Duck and Elmer Fudd cartoons got more graffic than that picture. Old Elmer Fudd used to stick his critters in the cooking pot when they were still alive with the hide still on them......can't remember anyone wanting to break his bones.

    Can "Rednecks" live in Iowa? My friends and relatives in N Dakota have called me that for years! I actually eat squirrel meat, I got deer heads hanging on my walls one of which dones a John Deere hat...am I being morbid and disrespectful to that deer? Don't hardly think so!

    As far as the anti's are concerned they can kiss my back side. They started this fire and they are the ones using everything hunting related as fuel for their own fire. Any steps backwards for something as trivial as this so as not to ruffle their feathers is playing right into their hands.

    I was taught to be respectful and thankful for the fruits of my labor in regards to hunting and fishing and this photo just does not cross that line or offend me. If the fox were being mutated or displayed in a gross manner then it'd be objectionable but I didn't see it that way! So lets cut this guy and Elmer Fudd some slack as their intentions are of a positive nature!

    ... we've debated this picture before. Some found it entertaining while others found it disgusting. If you find it disgusting, turn away. There are many other threads to enjoy.
